By placing an order through our site, you warrant that:
3.1 you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
3.2 you are resident in one of the Serviced Countries; and
3.3 you are accessing our site from that country.

4. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US

4.1 After placing an order, your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed upon Dispatch Confirmation.

4.2 The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.

5. CONSUMER CANCELLATION RIGHTS

5.1 If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a Contract at any time within seven working days following your receipt of the Products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 9 below).

5.2 To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing. You must also return the Products to us as soon as reasonably practicable, and at your own cost. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.

5.3 This provision does not affect your other statutory rights as a consumer.

5.4 This clause 4.2 only applies if you are contracting as a consumer.

6. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY

Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within a reasonable time of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

7. RISK AND TITLE

7.1 The Products will be your responsibility from the time of delivery.

7.2 Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.

8. PRICE AND PAYMENT

8.1 The price of the Products and our delivery charges will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.

8.2 Product prices are not subject to VAT.

8.3 Product prices and delivery charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.

8.4 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you that we are rejecting it.

8.5 If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably recognised by you as an error, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

8.6 Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card. Payment is taken at the point at which you order.

9. OUR REFUNDS POLICY

(a) if you are contracting as a consumer, because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the seven-day cooling-off period (see clause 5.1 above), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day on which you gave us notice of cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the Product in full, and any applicable delivery charges. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.
(b) for any other reason (for instance, because you have notified us in accordance with clause 23 that you do not agree to a change in these terms and conditions or in any of our policies, or because you consider that the Product is defective), we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund. We will refund the price of a defective Product in full, any applicable delivery charges and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
